“So Now What? The Path Ahead for Education in Wisconsin and the Nation.” November 17, 2022 Event

Marquette Law School:

Please join us on Thursday, November 17, for a program, “So Now What? The Path Ahead for Education in Wisconsin and the Nation.”

In Wisconsin, the outcome of the November elections, particularly for governor, will be an important marker in setting the course of education policy going forward, as a new state budget and legislative cycle begins. And both here and across the nation, standardized test scores statewide have declined from pre-COVID levels, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic linger as an important factor in determining how to help students. How should we be and how are we addressing needed improvements in education and student achievement?

The conference will include a presentation by Erin Richards, former education reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and USA Today and currently with the Center for Reinventing Public Education. She will discuss the center’s recently released report, The State of the American Student: Fall 2022.
